Don’t tell me you have a thing for black girls

During the past few years of my short, sweet life, I’ve gone out a lot, met a lot of weird people, and heard a lot of strange things.

However, the phrase that takes the cake is, “Yeah, I have a thing for black girls.” Really?

Now although some might find this flattering, I do not. When you say you’re into a certain race or trait, it sounds like you have some weird fetish, like maybe you want to go home and make some weird fetish homemade porno movie.

My friends always get so excited when we’re out and they hear someone say they’re into black girls, nudging me in the arm, giving me the eyes, and whispering in my ear. It’s not flattering, it’s not exciting; it’s just downright creepy. How would you like it if someone came up to you and said, “Hey, I have a thing for white girls!”? Let me tell you, you wouldn’t.


I’m sorry that your perception of us has been so skewed by the media. I’m sorry that you think we are all video honeys who sit around all day getting our weaves done, while simultaneously snapping our fingers in a z formation, eating fried chicken, popping our gum and yelling at each other. Guess what?  We don’t, and  contrary to popular belief, we don’t all look the same.

Don’t say, “You’re good looking for a black girl.” And please never use the phrase“the hot black girl.” I’m sorry – are we all usually heinous?


So I think I speak for many when I say to all you bastards out there trying to get in our pants:  please take a cue from this post and don’t ever use these lines on me or any other black girl.

We don’t like it, we don’t think it’s cute and no we don’t want to participate is some weird ebony and ivory fetish porn fantasy. #blackgirlproblems

Pharmacist: Oh I’m sorry I didn’t fill this prescription because this medication is usually given to middle aged men with kidney stones and um well you didn’t exactly fit that description.

Me: Well, yea. I had kidney stones.
